Podcasting</li></li></ul><li>Areas of Interest and Discussion<br />More about the hardware/servers you use.  Apple server for the encoding and streaming, so we were interested in how this has worked and why you decide on that solution. <br />The software you use for the production of the podcasts/screencasts.  We are considering a site licence for BB Flashback, which I  understand you have as well.  But we are also likely to have some Camtasia licences for more advanced screencasts etc.  It would be useful to hear of your experiences with BBFlashback the other software you use<br />How has the system been taken up by your staff and what types of things is it being used for? Do users like the system (both as contributors and viewers of content)?<br />How easy was the system to set up and how much time is needed for on-going maintenance?   What staff skills are needed to set up and look after the system?<br />How is the content generally distributed – do people browse a web site, is it linked to from the VLE or website, or embedded in web pages etc?<br />

    13. 13. Here are 11 reasons why we podcast in A&F :<br /> <br />1. It supports students who can’t attend for some reason.  Podcasting allows catch up. It is not a substitute for good quality contact time (it is not interactive to questions!). Students don't attend for a range of reasons including work (increasingly), family commitments and illness.2. It provides a blended learning experience.3. Allows 24/7 access to support materials with tutor explanations. Not just paper based hand-outs.4. It is good for explaining calculations and processes. We tell our students that 'formats are your friends'. It allows us to teach them formats and calculation processes. They can guide themselves through.5. They are great for revision - to revise material that they may have covered 6 months before.6. Great for FAQ - this is good for course work. for example - 'How do I lay this out?'7. Students whose first language is not English or who have some form of learning plan find them useful as they can learn at their own pace.<br />8. Mobility - they work on a range of PC and handheld devices. Mine are iPod friendly.<br />9. Accessible globally and more portable than physical hand-outs.10. Gives control of learning to the student.11. Give students value for money.<br />Nick Scott<br />http://www.celt.mmu.ac.uk/ltia/issue15/scott.php<br />http://www.celt.mmu.ac.uk/ltia/issue16/maguire.php<br />
    14. 14. “I can play you, fast forward you, rewind you and when I’m bored of you I turn you off”.<br />“My heart sank as an initial reaction to listening to this feedback about my course podcasting from a student. On calm reflection, it’s a real compliment and it reflects the learning style of many students. Podcasting transfers control of the learning process to the student and provides support to students when they want it and not during timetabled sessions or when staff are available. “<br />Student Feedback – Student experience and student satisfaction<br />Student feedback was sought in a number of ways including informal feedback to the tutor team, a formal class based survey, student voice podcast feedback and e-mail comments. Around 60% of students completed a comprehensive survey of the support received. Of these:<br />98% had watched podcasts and found them useful <br />98% would recommend podcast support to be used on other units and courses <br />81% watched the podcasts more than once <br />56% downloaded the podcasts onto their own PC <br />98% want more podcasts on the ATP2 course <br />71% accessed the podcasts at home, 14% at MMU and 15% at both <br />The statistics confirm the overwhelming success of the podcasts. The accessing of podcasts at home by students confirms the need for MMUBS to have a robust, accessible web based presence for podcast upload and delivery.<br />Nick Scott<br />
